Our lovely, blue-green house was built from a Sears kit in the 1920s. It has been extensively remodeled in the last few years and is a wonderful, comfortable place to stay during your visit to the Big Bend area.

My wife and I actually stayed in this house years ago, on one of our first trips to Big Bend, and fell in love with it. We had the opportunity to come out to the region for work and knew we wanted to make this house our home.

The space
There is a wonderful stone patio out back where you can watch the stars. On clear nights, you can see the Milky Way, satellites, and shooting stars.

Guest access
You have the whole place to yourselves.

Other things to note
IF YOU USE THE CHARCOAL GRILL OR THE FIRE PIT, PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS VERY DRY COUNTRY AND TAKE A FEW EXTRA PRECAUTIONS:
•Never leave a fire or lit grill unattended.
•I know the pit is huge and a massive bonfire is tempting, but please keep fire to a reasonable size.
•The only outdoor faucet is in the front yard. THE FAUCET IN THE BACK YARD DOES NOT WORK. There is a hose long enough to reach the back yard. Please be sure to leave the hose connected to the faucet and drag the end to the back yard before you light the grill or pit.
•To put out a fire in the pit – let all the wood burn away, then pour water on it. Leave the wet ashes there overnight.
•Same for charcoal – pour some water on the burnt-out coals and close the lid tight. Leave the cover off. There are a couple bricks on the bottom shelf of the grill to help keep the grill from blowing over (it gets really windy out here.)
•The next day, pour more water on the charcoal or wood. The fire pit, especially, can still be hot. When they are cool enough, dispose of the ashes in the ash can, next to the gate on the west side of the house. Don’t dump coal or ashes on the ground.

Thanks and enjoy!
